Happy Wednesday! I’m still doing some maintenance but I’m hoping you won’t notice a thing.  Hopefully by the end of the week I will be migrated to the more flexible WordPress.org.

Anyway, this is my final muffin post… for now. My sister tipped me off to a better-for-you new twist in our banana bread recipe.  I won’t call it “healthy” because I’m not counting the calories and carbs (it’s the politically correct PR person in me), but by replacing the butter with applesauce, the bread stays just as moist and I think it’s a little more sweet.  I baked it into some muffins tins so that it was easy to pack them for an easy work breakfast.
